We have been extremely busy here at Gravytrain in the past few months, especially as we have hired four new members of staff to our SEO and Social Marketing team. We want to give all our new recruits a warm welcome and decided the best way is to give them all a proper introduction!
Firstly we have Rebecca, who is our new Graduate Copywriter and Digital Marketing Assistant, who has recently completed her Masters Degree in Media and Communication at Kingston University. Before working at Gravytrain she had an internship at a PR company in London, and was also a promotional crew member for Heart and Capital FM.
Next up we have Stuart, who has also joined us as a Digital Marketing Assistant and is a keen writer who has already spent six years working in the industry. He spends his free time listening to music and likes to relax by watching combat sports and football. However he may have less time to do this soon as he is expecting a new addition to his family this July!
Helene is the newest member of the Gravytrain team and has taken up the exciting role of Director of Search. She already has a vast amount of experience and knowledge from running varied marketing campaigns for companies such as Lastminute.com and Jellyfish, where she worked with big names such as Waitrose and Riverford Organics. Helene has already brought some great ideas to Gravytrain, and we are very excited to see what she plans for the year ahead!
Damian has joined as a Marketing Executive, who completed a degree in Politics at the University at Exeter last year. He has a gained a variety of marketing experience throughout the years from various projects including hosting charity events and managing student campaigns. A keen linguist, Damian can speak both French and Japanese, and also is an avid motorcyclist and kickboxing instructor.

This weekend, E3 Team Gravytrain was in full force at Rockingham Motor Speedway, Europe’s fastest racing circuit. The team were there to compete in rounds 3 & 4 of the MX5 Cup and the MX5 Championship.
As always gravytrain’s Kevin Taylor was there along with team mates Jade Edwards, Bret Smith and Jim Edwards, who had a brilliant first race in the MX5 Cup, starting in 6th position and fighting his way up to 2nd, clinching the teams second podium of the year already. Unfortunately, the other members of E3 Team Gravytrain weren’t so lucky this time out.
Taylor started well in the MX5 Cup, moving up from 13th to 7th place, but was then hit by Abbie Eaton, knocking him back down to a finish in 23rd place. However, Kevin did place a more respectable 11th in the second MX5 Cup race, despite being spun with just 3 laps to go.
It was a similar story for Smith who crashed out of the first race and managed just a 19th place finish in the second race with a badly damaged car. Meanwhile, Edwards placed well in 6th in the first Mazda Championship race but was then taken out of the second race after fighting her way up to 4th place. Unfortunately her car was written off, meaning a DNF in the second race and uncertainty for the coming outings.
So, maybe not the perfect outing but plenty of action from the E3 Team Gravytrain! Make sure to watch this space for all the details and drama from the rest of the Mazda MX5 series.
Rounds 1 and 2 of the UK’s biggest single make motor racing championship gets under way on Sunday 27th March at the home of racing, Silverstone. E3 Sport is all set to run 4 cars; Gravytrain’s Kevin Taylor will be competing in a Mazda MX5 2.0 Sport (Mk3) in the MX5 Cup after graduating from the Mk1 series along with multiple Renault Champion and former BTCC driver Jim Edwards Jnr. Jim’s daughter Jade will be racing in a Mazda MX5 1.6 Mk1 in the Mazda MX5 Championship along with the son of a current BTCC driver, Brett Smith.
To help get your racing juices flowing for the start of the season, here is a little history on the single make motor racing championship. There are 2 championships; the MK1′s which is the MX5 Championship and the MK3′s which is called the MX5 Cup.
In its first year the championship was popular and by 2009 the number of drivers competing had doubled from 20 cars to 40! By 2010 the Ma5da MX5 racing championship had become the UK’s biggest single make motor racing competition. It attracted some of the best drivers in the UK, from BTCC (Jim Edwards Jnr), Clio Clip Cup and many more.
The Mazda MX5 Championship is now recognised as the UK’s largest single make racing series with over 120 registered drivers, extensive TV coverage and a huge following due to its ultra competitive and extremely close racing. With over 100 cars entered and full grids of 54 cars around the Grand Prix circuit, the weekend promises to be a spectacle.
We’ll let you know how the E3 Sport / Team Gravytrain cars get on with a full update after the weekend. All four drivers are looking forward to the races and hopefully starting the season with a good result.
